It was the second Thursday of Cannes. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were at a party. The paps shot them from across the street -- rare photos of the two of them kissing and loving. With video! It was very romance, per Borat Sagdiyev.
Three weeks ago, when I was planning our Cannes coverage, I had this day marked as an anniversary celebration for Twi-Hards. The photos were ready. The article was written. And... well...
There’s been a modification.
For #RobstenIsUnbroken-ers, however, there are still two magic words:
What therefore (Twilight) has joined together, let not man put asunder.
As Emily Dickinson wrote:
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
May the birds in your hearts keep flying, Twi-Hards.
As for the rest of us, how about some Gossip Genie? Next hookups for Stewart and Pattinson that would be Good For Gossip -- want to play?
For Pattinson, probably Jennifer Lawrence, right? She likes pretty British boys and he knows about actresses with blockbuster franchises. And for Stewart, I propose Liam Hemsworth. The gossip yield on both would keep us busy for years.
When you were in grade school, did you ever play T-R-U-E L-O-V-E?
“True” letters were worth ten, “Love” letters counted for one apiece -- remember? We used to T-R-U-E L-O-V-E every boy and girl in class. Like this:
So Jennifer Lawrence + Robert Pattinson = 128%
And Kristen Stewart + Liam Hemsworth = 105%
(Is my math wrong? Is my identity going to be forged now that my handwriting is online?)
There were rules though. Like the ideal was between this percent and that percent. And over 100% was considered this or that. I can’t remember now. All I know is that RDJ and I get 98%. Unless the “Jr” doesn’t count. In which case, maybe even better = 88%!
